After the Nets suffered their latest loss Wednesday in Charlotte, coach Jason Kidd said he and the team would be watching film on the game at Thursday’s practice.

Not surprisingly, it wasn’t pretty.

“We watched a lot of really brutal tape today,” Paul Pierce said following the team’s practice at UNC Charlotte before the Nets flew to Minneapolis for Friday night’s game against the Timberwolves.

There were plenty of things to point out in the tape, from the Nets getting destroyed on the offensive glass, where the Bobcats out-rebounded them 17-6, and in points in the paint, where the Bobcats outscored them 52-34.

Charlotte coach Steve Clifford said after Wednesday’s game the biggest reason the Bobcats had so much success getting to the rim was because of the way the Nets were deploying their defense, pushing their bigs up to blow up pick-and-rolls and denying on the wings to try and create turnovers.

Kidd said though the Nets have defended the pick-and-roll in different ways this season as they struggle to find a consistent answer defensively, the biggest issue so far has been effort.
